Our Camps

Brand New Camps with our Great Team

Kids Science Labs is offering new and creative summer camp weeks for kids 4-14 yrs old at all our centers. Kids love the mystery and surprise of seeing inside devices we use everyday, designing their own cities of the future, and understanding how devices are made. For 2018, we have created new weekly themes for our Innovators Camp which your children will love including: 

Design the Future: Modern Marvels
Explorer's Camp

Med School 105
Engineering University
Mixing Madness II
How It's Made
A Random Walk Through Science

This isn't any summer camp

We work hard to create a summer experience your kids will love.  What makes us different?  First, we care deeply, our team is passionate about helping kids, and it shows in how hard we work.  Our dedicated full-time teachers engage kids all year long.  Our teachers have bachelors and masters degrees in education, engineering, biology, art, architecture, materials science, sociology, and theater - and those perspectives help us create outstanding classes.  There is a lot of talent around KSL all year long.   

Our week long camps offer engaging hands-on science and design classes led by our team of dedicated teaching faculty to help children discover, imagine, and create. With low student-teacher ratios, children in our camps are placed in age groups to create optimal learning environments for academic enrichment.

Summer Camp 2018 - Weeks

All new camps are coming for 2018.  One of the great advantages of having a full-time team of educators is we are innovating and creating curriculum all year long.  In 2018 we have all new camp designs, where our scientists will learn about energy distribution, create their own chemistry kit to take home, build their own pinball game, build their own submarines for exploration, and develop triage kits.  Just click below for a description of each week.
